A blog for ag innovators and investors
Viewing entries tagged with 'invest'
On May 30 and June 1, 2012 GAIN held a members only meeting at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis.
One of GAIN’s missions is the promotion of the importance of careers in agriculture and “agripreneurship” and the need to educate those interested in these career paths. Clearly, with the un-deniable need to double the world’s food production by 2050 (or so) the world needs talent in the creation/invention of innovative ag technologies and the commercialization of the same. There is also the need for experts in traditional agricultural careers such as field inspectors, veterinarians (who I have a ton of respect for) and of course plant scientists such as those at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center (www.danforthcenter.org a GAIN Founding Sponsor) and other prestigious plant science and ag organizations. An excerpt from Western Farm Press highlights such a need for talent and effort– and lack of SUPPLY!
We are going to start posting weekly blogs cataloging the top five articles we’ve read in the past week that relate to agricultural technology (agtech), ag innovation, ag investing, biotech and the like. The posts will go up on Fridays so we ensure we have a full week of content to pull from.
